It 8767 s unclear how you differentiate 8775 intolerance of views 8776 and 8775 intolerance of beliefs 8776 which seem synonyms to me, but I gather they could be restated as 8775 intolerance of views themselves 8776 and 8775 intolerance of a person 8767 s holding a belief 8776 ?
Or maybe instead of overconfidence it 8767 s more like: when you are riding a tiger, you have to continue, you can 8767 t jump off. When there is too much hate against people like you, the safest bet may be to join the haters, hoping that this provides you at least some shield against the hate.
Thing is, red and blue doesn 8767 t mean what they used to, and nowadays it is an engineered conflict to keep the perpetual infighting going. Divide and conquer, divide and conquer. Our most pressing problem is figuring out how to get out of this polarized, tribalist worldview. As long as we see each other as outgroups we 8767 re descending into conflict, poverty, hatred. We need something to unify us, preferably not an outside outgroup but something more enlightened.
Deism is not the view connotationally referenced by 8775 creationist. 8776 The connotation is 8775 created life in its current form without evolution. 8776
The Emperor summons before him Bodhidharma and asks: 8775 Master, I have been tolerant of innumerable gays, lesbians, bisexuals, asexuals, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, transgender people, and Jews. How many Virtue Points have I earned for my meritorious deeds? 8776
Properly, pointing out the existence of a motte and a bailey neither disproves the motte nor disproves the bailey. It 8767 s a tool to help you talk about either the motte or the bailey and not both.
I am against homosexual marriage and I am anti macro-evolution, which I would describe more precisely as anti-abiogenesis. I have good reasons for both of these positions. I like guns, but I do eat and like arugula. I basically only watch TV for sports like baseball, american, football, and UFC, although I do have the TV on when I exercise, but I listen to podcasts at the same time. I listen to blues mostly, except for my church music. I must be a very rare person. So dark matter does exist.
I 8767 d argue that it just reduces to misogyny, because the more hypermasculine and competitive the culture, the more the loser and loserdom as such tend to get branded as feminine. (Compare to what trans women report.) Men can, individually, be 8775 oppressed 8776 for being men, but 8775 inferior/loser/victim/submissive 8776 and 8775 masculine 8776 are coded as opposites we invariably seek to deny masculinity to the men we try to take down.
While clearly not red, he pokes around underexamined sacred values of the left, and does it rationally, reasonably, and interestingly, which should explain the effects on both groups you mention.
